We will tutor students at Egypt Elementary School perform some "character" skits for the whole school. We will be working with the Raleigh Community Church on various projects. Saturday we will do a community clean up and pass out flyers for the church and then possibly perform a few skits or have a devotional with the youth. Sunday we will help with services at Raleigh Community church – teaching kids classes and performing skits during worship.

GACS students will travel to Baton Rouge, LA to work with Kin Ellis and the South Baton Rouge Church of Christ. Located just minutes from the campus of Louisiana State University, previous JH mission groups have served with the campus and family ministries at South Baton Rouge Church of Christ. The highlight of last year's mission trip was setting up, working at, and cleaning up a church sponsored Easter Egg Hunt for over 500 local Baton Rouge families. Students are also given opportunity to serve local souls in need through physical efforts and work with disaster relief organizations.

We will be headed down to the Jekyll Island area to work with Mountains to Seas Ministries (http://www.mtn2sea.com/) and the Jekyll Island 4H Center. The purpose of the trip is to serve those who would normally serve us when we go visit the Georgia Coast. Mountains to Sea Ministries provides free labor for ministries already working in areas reaching out to the community. Students will be working in a wide range of service projects from painting, landscaping, and general cleanup of churches, community centers, and large organizations. The 4H Center will provide students an opportunity to learn about beach ecology and we will also help get their facilities ready for their busy summer season.
The trip includes transportation, housing, work materials, and all meals on the trip.
